Assignment to Teachers and Classes

In general, students will be placed at the grade level to which they are best adjusted academically, socially and emotionally.

Every effort will be made to place students with teachers where a positive student- teacher relationship will be established.

Students with Exceptional Needs

Assignment for students eligible for special education under the local plan for special education will be made by each student’s individualized education program team (IEP team) following assessment of the student’s educational needs according to the provisions of Education Code. No student may be assessed nor placed in a special education program without the written consent of the parent unless the district or SESR prevails in a due process hearing related to such assessment or placement.

It is the desire of the Board of Trustees that special education students be placed in the least restrictive environment possible, and therefore requests that all staff members of the district cooperate in every way with each student’s IEP.
